Cancer fellowship winner announced
An article we missed from the Cockburn Gazette back in December on the inaugural recipient of Ethan's Fellowship, Dr Sam Greenall.
Dr Greenall is an expert in evaluating and testing different drugs and therapies for the treatment of adult and pediatric brain cancers.
Shannon Davies, father of the six-year-old Success child the fellowship is named after, said Dr Greenall would be involved in getting patient-derived ependymoma to grow in dishes in the laboratory.
“At this stage the only way to grow these tumours is in mice which is not effective for screening hundreds of drugs simultaneously to see which is most active at killing tumour cells,” he said. “We’re very excited having Dr Greenall on board.”
